Commutative Groupoids

Abbreviation: CBinOp

Definition

A commutative groupoid is a structure $\mathbf{A}=\langle A,\cdot\rangle$ where $\cdot$ is any commutative binary operation on $A$, i.e. $x\cdot y=y\cdot x$

Morphisms

Let $\mathbf{A}$ and $\mathbf{B}$ be commutative groupoids. A morphism from $\mathbf{A}$ to $\mathbf{B}$ is a function $h:A\rightarrow B$ that is a homomorphism:

$h(x\cdot y)=h(x)\cdot h(y)$
